Even if you're not a person who gets worked up about it, being single on Valentine's Day isn't exactly a positive experience. But that's no reason to act rash. You don't have to get a zoo to name a cockroach after your ex and feed it to a meerkat. And you definitely don't have to con Outback into giving you a free steak. And yet, people do both of those things.
Moving past the cockroach thing, a 27-year-old man named Stephen Bosner really did commit his Valentine's Day to tricking Outback into serving him a steak free of charge. Why did he do this? Hard to say, for sure. Maybe his heart is two sizes too small. Or maybe it was to get a bunch of retweets on Twitter. If the latter, he certainly succeeded.
In the words of his first tweet, "If I went to Outback Steakhouse by myself tonight and asked for a table for 2, then got progressively sadder as the night went on alone, do you think they’d give me my steak for free?"
The answer was: yes and no.
